On the way to church last night the kids and I were talking in the car. They were asking all kinds of questions. Creighton asked about snakes and I took it the bible and walked them through the story of the Adam and Eve. Then got to even take it a step further and talk about sin and death and yet, also about Christ why He came. It was a great conversation!
Then Creighton asked how, when you die, do you GET to heaven. She wasn't asking a salvation question, just didn't understand how you physically arrived in heaven.
I told her I didn't know. But I did know that we could trust that somehow God would make it happen because we were promised that.
Jackson said he knew. He said, " God reaches his arms WAAAAAY down all the way to you, picks you up and carries you to heaven himself. "
I just loved it. I needed it. and whether it's really true or not, I know that in some way it is.
I just love my sweet boy! and I love that the Lord knew I needed to hear that HE does do that, even now, when I am not physically dead, but emotionally, spiritually, and mentally.
